Event table notes

Event data
Name: Simpson's Divan Tournament
Place: London
Start date: 27 Mar. 1876
End date: 29 Apr. 1876
 
Notes:
Gaige gives 6-player crosstable; Di Felice includes results of Wisker and Martin indicating that they did not play all their games. Feenstra Kuiper in Hundert Jahre Schachturniere gives just Blackburne's and Zukertort's totals including their results against Wisker and Martin, but in Hundert Jahre Schachzweikämpfe he gives totals for the 6 who finished, consistent with Gaige's crosstable, as does Sergeant. The Illustrated London News of 15 Apr. 1876 (p.383) indicates that Janssens won a game against Major Martin before the latter withdrew, a result not included in Di Felice's table.
